New York Gov. Cuomo said today that five New York regions are cleared to move to phase two of reopening based on the data the state has been seeing.
Reopening in New York City is more complicated, he said, but the city is on "track to meet all the metrics" and enter phase one of reopening on June 8.
Here are the metrics that the city needs to focus on, according to Cuomo:
- Hospital capacity remaining below 70% and establishing a personal protective equipment stockpile
- Testing and contact tracing being brought to scale
- MTA preparing for reopening
- Focusing on hotspots by ZIP code
